There are other ways to go about avoiding the process of probate such as Affidavits and other means; however, we do recommend that you seek an Attorney to better assist you with all the available options to you.  We do not accept Affidavits under California Probate Code 13100

Other information will assist in determining additional documents that will be needed:

  • Was the deceased a joint tenant with rights of survivorship?
  • Was the mineral property owned as husband and wife on courthouse records?
  • Were there any deeds or conveyances that may affect ownership, such as a remainder interest?
  • Was the interest deeded into a trust?
